    In September 2021, Dubai has seen significant changes to its legal landscape for the resolution of disputes, with Dubai Decree No. 34/2021 coming into force.

It establishes a single unified arbitration centre for Dubai, named the Dubai International Arbitration Centre (DIAC), with a structure that replaces the existing Dubai International Arbitration Centre as we know it.
